A Libertarian Manifesto of sorts

I had only dabbled in Thoreau before this. It was advantageous to read these two entries together, consecutively as it were, because Walden gives a firm and comprehensive context of the author; then Civil Disobedience relays the bulk of his views and perception of society. The author’s ideas are relatable and relevant even far more than a century after publishing. It also was striking as he was talking about slavery and the current affairs of his time, I kept remembering, like, oh yeah this is before Lincoln and the civil war and abolition and all that. And Thoreau is a New Englander, so it’s a very poignant take on things. Would recommend to any friends who are intellectually inclined.
